Yup but if you look into the Libertarian stance ... if you can figure out WHICH one ... and their own lack of coherent philosophy and unified support ... you can see why they have never made any headway. The truth sems to be that Libertarians are almost anarchist in nature ... Depending on which ones you talk to some seem pretty hard core Liberal, others are pretty hard core Conservative and a lot of them are ... well, vacillating on a daily basis. What needs to happen is the Constitution Party needs to get itself into gear

Libertarians agree with liberals on many social issues, but not for the reasons liberals do. We believe not that these behaviors are good or moral, but that in a free society government should not criminalize or infringe on individuals rights in regards to actions that do not directly harm others.

I DON'T FALL IN LOVE with politicians – the last presidential candidate I voted for with ardor was Ronald Reagan in 1980 – and my heart doesn't break when those I support don't win. Nor am I a party loyalist. As a conservative I vote for Republicans more often than not; for those of us committed to free enterprise, limited government, military strength, and a healthy civil society, there is usually no better option. But the Republican Party isn't the conservative movement. And a GOP defeat doesn't mean conservatism – or the GOP, for that matter – is in crisis.
